Activate direct message

Could someone please activate direct message for me on this forum? I need to connect with customer support and--of course--both the call center and online chat agents are unavailable.

As mentioned by user @BruceW, we ask that you please start by posting your request in the most appropriate public forum board first. If our team needs a direct message from you they will ask you to send it on your public post once they are ready to assist you. Please refrain from sending an unsolicited direct message to any employee or user, as that is a violation of our Xfinity Forum Guidelines (found here: https://forums.xfinity.com/conversations/guidelines/xfinity-forum-guidelines/602da8fdc5375f08cd20b38c) and our Xfinity Forum Acceptable Use policy (found here: https://forums.xfinity.com/conversations/guidelines/xfinity-forum-acceptable-use-policy/602d9c64c5375f08cd574236). Although we would never want to get to that point with any user, violations to our posted guidelines could result in a revocation of a user's Xfinity Forum posting privileges. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

The Direct Messaging icon for private messages doesn't appear until you have made your first post. You should be able to see it now as long as you are logged in to the Forums (you may need to reload the page).

Please be aware that using Direct Messaging before you have been asked to do so is considered a violation of the Forum Acceptable Use Policy. See https://forums.xfinity.com/conversations/guidelines/xfinity-forum-acceptable-use-policy/602d9c64c5375f08cd574236.

You are encouraged to first post a description of your question or problem without including any personal information. If personal information is needed you'll be asked to provide it in a private Direct Message.

Please be aware that there are 2 kinds of responses in this Forum: Replies and Comments. When you Comment on a post by scrolling down to "Comment on this post here...", I am notified of your response. But if you select Reply, I am NOT notified and may not be aware of your response.
